 DHC Hearing
The Govt side though requested for postphonement of the hearing ,the HC ignored the plea and advised our Advocate to present case . The presentation lasted for about 45 minutes whereafter the court adjourned the case for further hearing to 14th Oct. IBA has also not relented from its earlier stand with the result UFBU are thinking of launching agitational programmes the details of which are yet to be finalised. One side, the court case seems to get further prolonged and on the other side if solution to our pension issues depend upon/linked to the BP settlement that also does'nt seem to get finalized soon. Result- we will be the sufferers and we have to wait for justice for more time. How long is the question? Whether it is Mr Jaitely or Chindambaram, Cong or BJP nothing makes a difference as far as we are concerned. Let us be happy and keep praying God to bestow us with peace of mind and good health until our D day.
 
Comment: Dear Mr. Subramanian,
Please do not be so despondent. UFBU cannot solve our problems in the 10th Bipartite settlement. We can only feel good in a way that for a change, the pensioners' demands have been included in the charter of demands.
As regards the attitude of the new Govt,. we are hopeful that unlike the earlier Govts, this Govt will get the problems of pensioners resolved by IBA, soon.
The commencement of the hearing of our case in the Delhi High Court Div Bench, and the fixing of an early date for the next hearing, are also positive developments.
Let us hope for better days for pensioners.

 7th bipartite bank retirees plight
Whether right or wrong UFBU has submitted updation of wages and solving pensionersx problem particulartly 7th bipartite as their predcessors has created problems and iba is interconnecting our issues with xth bipartite viz payment of 100% da neutralisation
 
Comment: Dear Mr Dhanabalan,
We feel that you are mistaken about the issues concerning pensioners, included in the charter of demands of UFBU for the 10th Bipartite settlement.
The anomalies created for the 7th Bipartite pensioners, cannot be rectified in the 10th Bipartite talks. What has been included is updation of pension, improvement of family pension, 100% DR neutralization. Incidentally the issue of DR neutralization for pre 8th Bipartite pensioners cannot also be solved in the 10th Bipartite talks, as the matter is sub judice.
Some of the problems of pensioners, like the 7th Bipartite issue, REMBS for all pensioners, etc, can be solved outside the purview of the Wage negotiations. Let us hope for the best.

I am not agitated. But there should be a limit to our patience. iba cannot behave like british raj. we are not slaves. if bank managements cannot make sufficient income to meet the reasonable demands submitted in time they too can be termed as NPA for the govt. I am only suggesting to change the methods of our approach to solve our problems.Let us learn from from the father of the nation who led Salt satyagraha movement.

Who cheated the 30000 retirees. Many have died. Many could not give their families a honourable living. Many cases. One learned gentlem,an cried from rooftop that the matter is a closed chapter. In fact I suffered by not giving proper treatment to my wife who underwent major operation. Let the almighty pardon those responsible to cheat us. We have reached a stage wherein we cannot enjoy the fruits of a favourable judgement. Many are above the age of 75. Dhanabalanaa@gmail.com
 
Comment: Dear Mr Dhanabalan,
We share your agony and concern for the historic 7th and 8th Bipartite Wage settlements signed by the representatives of UFBU, comprising of Bank employees' and officers' Federations. Pensioners were cruelly forgotten and dumped. Let us hope, that even if belatedly, justice is done.

You belong to the 7th Bipartite batch. The batch of over 30,000 pensioners who were cheated in a unprecedented manner. These pensioners get pension calculated on pre revised salary of 6th Bipartite. Let us hope what the Bank and the Court does, to rectify the injustice done to the entire batch. Please keep in touch.

It is not the bank is indifferent. Enough they have argued and submitted. The bank should not ask for time on the date of hearing . Or should submit before the Court to decide on the basis of the statement filed by the PENFED. If the Court can dispose of the case on the basis of what has happened so far it will be a nice end. May be the bank by wilfully defaulting wanted to end the legal battle.Let us wait and see.

We are a small interacting group of SBI Pensioners(VII Bipartite) in Srirangam. Mr.Salil Ghosh was the main hope for us. He fought the legal demons valiantly and won a verdict that could have brought justice to many. But the devilish and archaic system of Indian legal delivery procedures , backed by an indifferent bureaucracy and inefficient governance , denied him and us the fruits of his untiring labour. We feel very sad. He achieved single handed what bigger groups could not. We pray for the soul of Mr. Salil Ghosh.

We deeply regret the tragic and untimely demise of Salil Ghosh, who had become a lone crusador. We were in constant touch with him, though he was not our member. We shall offer all sort of assistance to his widow. It is sad that Salil could not live to see the outcome of his untiring efforts, just because the erstwhile Chief Justice thought it fit to delay delivery of judgement of his case (after hearing in the Div Bench had been concluded) for a long time, and then asked for the case to be heard afresh. He is now a Judge in Supreme Court. No further comments.

What is the full expansion of Aibarc?Updation demand has started gaining ground only from very recently. RBI staff have won in their demand for updation. Naturally the bankers should also get updation. We have been asking for it, demanding for it and fighting for redressal of the anomolies in the fixation of payment of pension to the 7th BP retirees which despite the lapse of more than a decade we could not get. As you know our bank pensioners fedns are not strong enough to fight because we cannot make an impact whereas the working staff federations can do, Now the 10th BP talks are in progress and atleast now not lamenting about the past and not thinking about what we have lost let us get justice atleast now .
